I bought a rochobby waco a few months ago, its been setting on my cabinet in my living room. Yesterday was it will fly or it will die day. I took it out and flew four packs through it and it lived. What a sweetheart of a plane! I definitely see more biplanes in my hangar even if I have to dig post holes with a few to make room.

bipes

I intend to, I have a lot of planes to build and a lot of them can be foam , and I was impressed withthe way foam worked, even though it was not the stuf regularly used, and it was difficult to sand it was a tough plane and if I would've shown patience and waited to go to the regular field, it would have had a better chance.
today I went and bought 5 more sheets, I'll build something simpler quicker and easier sam

If i could've gotton it trimmed and back in control it would have been a solid flier

That's the spirit! I figured that with a handle like yours, biplanes would be your bird of choice. Biplanes are as diverse as all of the other planes put together AND they have more wings! Welcome aboard aboard (see x2)

it was a great planes sporster I had an original that i converted to electric and I weighed it before I got the motor. with no motor and battery it still weighed over 3 lbs the new foam version weighed 3lbs 2 oz ready to fly, the new plane will be a easier build, til I get some more experience with the foam.

Well my handle could have been Tipstall and Crash they both had the same result with my first plane! That flight lasted about 20 seconds lol. Presto in 20 seconds I made a foam snowball out of a 150 dollar bill woohoo. Now I fly planes like I stole them no more mister nice guy. I wish I had an instructor but I'm over the worst of it, I joined a club and watch others pancake expensive airplanes what a hoot!

I have several planes flying wings and motor gliders. I like them all but none have the cool factor of these bipes at least to me. The way I fly I need to paint the passenger green and issue barf bags lol.
